Similar to Penn State, with its "Linebacker U" nickname, the Brady family has developed a reputation for developing talent at that marquee football position, with Ryan the latest in the line at La Salle. Ryan Brady's father, John, played linebacker at the old Archbishop Kennedy and Ursinus. His brother, Shane, was a key performer there at La Salle (Class of 2010) and Lafayette. Continuing the tradition in eye-catching fashion, Ryan Brady registered 15 tackles, including 11 in a sensational first half, as the visiting Explorers muffled Malvern Prep, 27-8, Saturday in a nonleague game at Pellegrini Athletic Complex.

For Spencer Patton, every second that ticked off the scoreboard clock at Lower Bartley Field felt like a minute. His La Salle soccer team was up a goal in a taut game against visiting St. Joseph's Prep, and the final few minutes dragged on and on for the sophomore tricaptain. Every cleared ball didn't seem to go far enough, and every free kick for the Hawks looked like a dangerous opportunity. But then the whistle finally blew Tuesday afternoon, and the Explorers' 2-1, come-from-behind win was complete, propelled by two goals in a four-minute span of the Catholic League game.

A year ago, both Council Rock South and La Salle saw their baseball seasons end in devastating fashion. In an error-marred state-quarterfinal playoff, C.R. South yielded three runs in the bottom of the seventh and bowed to Spring-Ford, 6-5. La Salle, after jumping out to an 11-0 lead in the first 11/2 innings of a Catholic League semifinal against Neumann-Goretti, gave up 13 runs in a nightmarish sixth inning and fell, 18-13. The chance to come full circle comes on Friday, when the Golden Hawks and Explorers clash in a PIAA Class AAAA championship game set for 1 p.m. at Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.

THE MOST pressing matter on my mind leading up to La Salle's Sweet 16 game on Thursday is how I am going to obtain a ticket. Not to the West Regional semifinal against Wichita State, but to the Flyers-Islanders matchup taking place in Philly on the same night. Let me explain. I'm a bit superstitious, and in my mind the only way for La Salle to win on Thursday, is for me to be in the building I've visited each day the Explorers have won an NCAA Tournament game this year - the Wells Fargo Center.

"We can't stall on drives like we did at times. That's on me. " Shurmur, who is ticketed for Vanderbilt, connected on 23 of 36 attempts.

LOS ANGELES - The good doctor didn't mean to be contrary. Dr. John Giannini was not being obtuse, or ornery, or even particularly prickly the past 2 weeks, when he disputed the "Cinderella" tag affixed to his Explorers. His dispute, of course, was meant to legitimize La Salle in his own players' eyes. He's practically a sports psychologist, for goodness' sake. Don't let him mesmerize you with that soothing tone. La Salle was as Cinderella a story as any team, ever.

Samantha Davis was still in high school at Bishop McDevitt when her father would bring home tapes of football games he had officiated and review them. Sometimes during these film sessions, she would walk by and say, "Wasn't that a penalty?" And her father would tell her, "You should do this. " Davis is a 2014 La Salle University graduate who, in addition to taking her father's advice, is now taking graduate school classes in history at La Salle. She spends her weekends looking for pass interference and works a side job on the sideline at Eagles games.

It was in the mid-1990s when Drew Gordon, then La Salle's offensive coordinator, took notice of a sophomore reserve. "He kind of stood out because he worked so hard and, even as one of the younger guys on the team, was a leader," said Gordon, now the Explorers' head coach. That player was Travis Manion. Later, as a hard-nosed senior fullback and defensive lineman, he played a key role in La Salle's drive to a 12-1 record and the Catholic League title. After making his mark at La Salle, where he also excelled in wrestling and lacrosse, Manion went on to the U.S. Naval Academy and, following in the footsteps of his father, became a Marine Corps officer.
